Any adult who is legally allowed to possess a firearm may do so in Iowa, openly or concealed. However, Iowa concealed carry permits are still available for those who wish to travel with their firearms to other states that have reciprocity with Iowa.
In order to secure an Iowa concealed carry permit, you will need to pass a firearms training course. But regardless of whether you choose to pursue this permit or not, we believe carrying a firearm comes with a great deal of responsibility. Therefore, acquiring the necessary knowledge and skills to carry safely is essential.
You may be thinking, “Where can I find in-person or online CCW classes near me?”
That’s where training with Concealed Coalition comes in. Our CCW certification courses involve riveting experiential learning, and people who attend our classes talk about them long after their training is over. Through taking a class with our team, you’ll receive a comprehensive overview of relevant conceal and carry policies in Iowa, as understanding these state-specific regulations is a critical part of being a law-abiding citizen in Iowa.
Another component at the core of our training courses is gun safety. Trainers focus on safe handling practices and storage methods, as well as how to prevent accidents and treat potential injuries. By learning to respect and handle firearms responsibly, permit holders are sure to become a positive and safe influence in their communities.
Whether it’s an online or an in-person program, all of our courses are taught by certified, highly qualified trainers who incorporate stories from their own backgrounds into scenario-based training to keep class engaging. This methodology can help students become more well-versed in assessing potential threats, making quick decisions, and reacting appropriately under pressure, contributing to a sense of enhanced preparedness and confidence in dangerous situations. Our team also works tirelessly to create an encouraging environment for participants of all experience levels to safely learn about the proper use of firearms.
